Age at Work | Northern Ireland

Supporting businesses to be more age inclusive

We are all living for longer, which means — for the majority of us — we will also be working longer.

Coupled with a reducing birth rate, this presents challenges and opportunities for both employers and older people.


Age at Work – a Business in the Community and Age NI partnership project in Northern Ireland – is supporting businesses to be more age inclusive in their approach to retaining, retraining and recruiting older workers; raising awareness of the need for an age-inclusive agenda in government, business and wider society; and supporting mature workers to remain in or return to work.

Why take part in Age at Work?

"I would highly recommend the Business Review tool to any organisation aiming to gain a better understanding of their current and future age-inclusive practices.  The practical recommendations along with the ongoing support from BITCNI are incredibly valuable in supporting leaders to develop and promote an age-inclusive agenda."
